On the afternoon of Oct. 3, 1993, as Rangers and Delta Force operators approached the downed Black Hawk chopper, a barrage of gunfire welcomed them. Retired Command Sgt. Maj. Chris Faris, a Delta Force veteran, is one of the soldiers in the mission. Faris, who later became the top enlisted member for the elite Joint Special Operations Command, is one of 60 soldiers to receive new honors for their involvement in the 1993 Mogadishu Battle. Last November, former Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy called for a review of war activities, which resulted in the honors. Fifty-eight soldiers will receive Silver Stars, and two will receive the Distinguished Flying Cross.
